In April of this year, Manuel “M”, an element of the Auxiliary State Police (IPAE), was killed by municipal agents of Acapulco after the confrontation that resulted from the assault on bullets against a woman and another subject.
According to the Guerrero Prosecutor’s Office, members of the Municipal Police repelled an attack initiated by Manuel “M”, who had previously fired his charge weapon against a woman and her companion, who was traveling aboard a compact vehicle on the main avenue of the Diamond Zone.
That is how the shooting broke out on Las Naciones Boulevard, at the height of a Chevrolet brand dealership. Presumably, the state trooper was pointing out who would be his victim when a patrol with at least five uniformed men arrived.
At the scene of the events, field crime work was carried out by experts from the FGE, carrying out the corresponding procedures,” informed the ministerial authorities.
The emergency services received the report on a confrontation after 4:00 p.m. on April 23. With the details of the Guerrero Prosecutor’s Office, reports on alleged hitmen who attacked municipal officials are ruled out. Although there were preliminary reports of five wounded, the authorities did not offer further details.
After opening fire on his Security colleagues, the IPAE element tried to run, but in the course of the attacks he was hit by an impact and he was left lying next to a Nissan Tsuru model taxi. Meanwhile, the woman was searched and presented multiple blows, for which she was sent to the hospital.
